World Ocean Summit Insight Hour

Women play a significant role in the blue economy, yet their input rarely receives the support, recognition and publicity it deserves. The world ocean initiative’s Women and the ocean: Changemakers challenge, sponsored by the nature conservancy, showcases leading female changemakers working to develop business solutions to achieve ocean-related sustainability. Three inspiring women from across the globe, leading the way for a sustainable ocean economy, have won the world ocean initiative’s inaugural changemakers competition. To help bring the changemakers’ ideas to life, they will receive guidance from three renowned female ocean leaders as part of a 12-month mentorship programme.

This session will bring together the changemakers and their mentors to discuss their vision for the blue economy, outline the potential impact of their projects and detail what they expect to gain from the mentorship.
